7:00 pm
we're safe and what with e can differently to protect our flyers. go to files. thanks for watching. thanks. this is a fox news alert. at this hour authorities are searching for answers after an egyptair plane crashed into the sea. 66 people were on board. the plane was traveling from paris to cairo and russian and egyptian officials think terrorism may be to blame. joining us now is kitty logan. >> reporter: terrorism is one of possible scenarios but for authorities to establish what went wrong with this aircraft they need to find it. egypt has ordered search efforts to be intensifiied particularly
7:01 pm
in the waters south of the greece coast where the plane may have crashed. there were early reports of finding wreckage but egyptair says none has been found so far. the aircraft was flying from paris towards cairo around 24 hours ago when it disappeared after the radar shortly after it crossed into egyptian airspace into greece. there were 66 passengers and crew on board. egyptair issued a statement tonight offering condolences to relatives of the missing saying sadly that they don't expect any survivors. so the wait goes on for anxious relatives whose loved ones never showed up at cairo's airport. this and other ins departments in egypt have heightened fears about flying in and out of the country. the u.s. navy has sent aircraft to support greece in search and rescue efforts but until the wreckage and crucially the black boxes are found what happened to this plane may remain a mystery.
7:02 pm
>> all right. thank you. gabriel is at the big board with more on what happened right before the egyptair flight disappeared. with your background and experience i know you have a lot of insight here. >> you know authorities are earlier today egyptian gyptair officials did provide information on what happened before the plane disappeared. less than an hour before the scheduled arrival in egypt it was cruising at 38,000 feet. that's when authorities say it took a 90 degree left hand turn before moving 360 degrees, flipping to the right, and dropping more than 20,000 feet and vanishing from radar at around 10,000 feet. the military says it did not receive a distress call and according to the associated press an airport official indicated earlier that the pilot did not send one which could mean whatever caused the plane to plummet happened suddenly. >> let me ask you this based on your experience because we keep
7:03 pm
looking and hearing it veered left and right and it went down 22,000 feet. this is viewed as the airbus as a work horse, it flies multiple flights a day, they never have any problems, it's on a superb maintenance program. i think terrorism first thing that comes to my mind. >> that's a great point. this is a region that is very dangerous right now. you have isis and affiliate in egypt so it's a hot bed of terrorism but let me present some other information. at this point there have been no indication we have found in debris on the surface. when this first happened people thought this disappeared that would indicate the airplane blew you up but then we had information that turned one way and then another and that looks like a spin towards the water. now it looks to me like this
7:04 pm
aircraft may have been in more than one piece because of the fact we haven't seen a debris field and we've found no indications of that aircraft so far opens the door to terrorism and mechanical failure and a pilot that's suicidal but they'll be looking for that aircraft. i think they're more likely to find it in one piece. >> you told me in your experience you saw a large plane crash in pone piece and it went straight to the bottom. >> you're referring back to when i was flying for the navy. we lost a pilot. he was doing practice bombing runs at night doing dives towards the water. we knew exactly where his location was when he crashed. another pilot was watching but we never found the aircraft. it was in a nose down dive going fast and if the aircraft is in one piece you're not going to see debris floating like you
7:05 pm
would if the aircraft explodes above the surface. >> thanks for sharing that. here now with reaction former commercial pilot and aerospace journalist is with us, one of donald trump's foreign policy advisors dr. farez is with us and national foreign security staffer is here. you heard what leah had to say. our first thought has to be terror. i'm thinking they had three air marshals on board. 22,000 foot plunge. that doesn't happen very often. >> it really doesn't, especially the idea if a plane sort of come busts mid flight is virtually unheard of. the reluctance here has to do with the families. you want to be careful not to call an incident terrorism and cause unnecessary trauma to the family members of the passengers that were on boards. once there's an inking that a
7:06 pm
terrorist activity might have been in the works here you want to call it as soon as possible because you want to bring every resource to bear in the investigation. since they announced terrorism was on the docket as potential -- >> let's talk about this particular plane, the airbus. it's well known for its safety features is it not? it's one of the safist planes in the air. >> yeah. it has an admirable record. there's thousands of these flying. it's a work horse in the industry. comparable to a boeing 737. it's been involved in a lot of high profile accidents in the last few years but there's a lot of them out there. i think what we need to find out is why has there been no satellite infrared heat signature. it was reported this morning there was one but now the u.s.
7:07 pm
government officials have taken that back. if you recall with the metrojet crash last year within three days they had confirmation that satellites overhead got a heat signature indicating there was a bomb on board. we haven't been able to get any confirmation on that. they say there's no indication of a heat signature where this airbus went down in the mediterranean. >> here's the problem. radical islamic terrorism seems to be at war with the rest of the world. so when somebody like myself thinks okay there's three air marshals on board that means they're armed and people charged the cockpit they probably would have been stopped so either something happened within the cockpit either one of the pilotipieltlots was a terrorist or there had to be a bomb on the plane.
7:08 pm
i'm thinking of the pockets h e possibilities here. is it normal reaction to think terrorism. >> absolutely. if we are at war with the jihadist so there is an event we have to read it with that perspective though we will have to wait for the black box to be discovered then we'll have the full truth. now we are 24 hours only after the incident yet you see a consensus between the russians and egyptians and the french because they've ordered a security investigation and they see that investigation trending towards terrorism. if this is the case egypt is under attack by the jihadists all over. >> we've watched all of this unfold when you saw the general come into power and of course you had the head of the muslim brotherhood in power for a period of time. i did learn one thing today from a source of mine that at the
7:09 pm
airport they discovered after the paris bombing there were 57 people that were on the terror watch list working at that airport, some as i understand it were removed but some still on the watch listed access to those airplanes. >> it defies explanation. there's no possible explanation. it's out rajous and there's not anything else to stay about it. when it comes to aviation security what we're really seeing is that we have to be mindful of the fact that the terrorists are actually innovating faster than governments are able to come up with new screening measures. that's a problem here. new kinds of underwear bombs and shoe bombs and ways to conceal them are being developed right now as we sit here and talk tonig tonight. >> paris is not known for the same type of security measures we use here in the united
7:10 pm
states, and they still had access to airplanes. i want to talk about the plunge that this airplane took and in your experience because i know you have to go through a lot of training, you go through instances where a plane is in a free fall but it's not likely to ever happen even if all the engines went out that would no the be the normal pattern of an airplane decent would it? >> no, but actually this loss of control that you talk about which we've lost more and more jets to over the last few years very high profile accidents were all loss of control meaning the pilots the a good airplane and they initiated their own demise. there's many carriers that haven't started this training. when they looked at pilot records they found out they had not engaged in this loss of
7:11 pm
control training. if something happened up there this might have been the first time these pilots saw it. >> to drop to 22,000 feet in that period of time in the manor described, thank you for being here. authorities continue to investigate whether or not terrorism is in fact to blame for the disappearance of the egyptair flight. french officials warned of isis attacks. katherine is on the story and she'll have a full report. later tonight. >> are they going to interview paula jones? in one case it's about exposure and another case it's about groping and fondling and touching against a women's will. >> and rape. >> donald trump unloads on bill clinton's indiscretion. laura weighs in. brand new national polls shows donald trump plus five against hillary clinton. that and more tonight on

7:14 pm
a news alert so as authorities try to piece together what happened with egyptair a french spy chief is saying tonight that isis is preparing to strike again in france. fox news chief intelligence correspondent joins us with the latest. >> reporter: a transcript released earlier today shows that france's equivalent of the cia warned on may 10th that a string of terrorist attacks by isis is possible. his comments focussed on stadiums and did not specifically cite aviation. we know the islamic state is
7:15 pm
planning new attacks. it's in a position where it would try to hit as quickly and as hard as possible. prosecutors are focussed on airport workers who had access to the flight before it left paris. that means investigators are exploring the same scenario that brought down a russian metrojet last october. speaking in washington today the homeland security chairman said the evidence is limited and preliminary but drew a possible connection. >> the indicators are likely they're dealing again with a terrorist type of attack, an insider threat where a bomb could have placed on that aircraft one using a timing device that would have started out of cairo or whether it was lag acknowledge put in the cargo hold. >> this morning the french
7:16 pm
parliament proved a restriction. they said the terrorist threat is high and the measure will cover the upcoming soccer championships. >> joining us now is the religious director of the islamic center for greater toledo. also former fbi agent and security staffer. we've seen this happen again and again. my first thought is terrorism and your reaction. >> i agree with you. planes don't drop from the air without a distress signal. this could still be a mechanical malfunction. we have to find out the plane and find out what happened and do an investigation however just evidence indicates that this plane was attacked. >> especially with three air marshals on board, right? if something happened they would have come up and thnot a lot of people on the plane. let me go to what donald trump said, he went after hillary clinton for using -- for
7:17 pm
refusing to use the word radical islam. here's what he said. >> today we had a terrible tragedy and she came up and she said that donald trump talked about radical islamic terrorism which she doesn't want to use. she used a different term because she doesn't want to use that term. she refuses to use that term. i'm saying to myself what just happened about 12 hours ago, a plane got blown out of the sky and if anything -- if anybody thinks this wasn't blown out of the sky, you're 100% wrong folks, okay. you're 100% wrong. >> tell us why people should not think this is radical islamic terrorism? shouldn't it be people's first thoughts bacsed on the history f the last 30 years in the world? >> good evening. thank you for having me on your show. now, today it's a very sad day. there is no doubt.
7:18 pm
you can see the people whom we say that they are the victims of -- >> i appreciate that but we don't have a lot of time so my question is isn't it the normal thought process based on what has happened around the world that radical islamists. >> it is not because i tell you the people who die are muslims and nonmuslims. so -- >> you're right. radical islamists kill muslims too but radical islam is a threat to good people all around the world regardless of their religious affiliation. >> if you want to call it the problem with calling it radical muslims or radical islam the problem here -- >> do you deny that sir? do you deny radical islam exists? >> it's whether i deny or not deny. >> i'm asking do you acknowledge radical islam is a threat?
7:19 pm
sir i'm asking. >> there are people using -- >> do you knowledge that radical islam is a threat to christians and muslims and jews and innocent people worldwide? >> yes but there are those -- >> so -- >> there are radical christians and radical jews. >> really? radical christians give me me an example of what radical christians and jews have done recently in terms of terror attacks. >> you can go to david keresh. >> that's your answer. >> yes. >> are you denying that radical islam is a clear and present danger to human beings worldwide. >> i don't like the sound. i don't want to sound that i'm justifying for tlohose radical people. >> what's your reaction. >> i think it's outrageous bringing up david keresh as an example of christian radicalization is ridiculous.
7:20 pm
islamic radicalization is a fact. we're living through it. it's going to continue. europe is asleep at the wheel. they're not taking the necessary steps to address it and eradicate it themselves and help us do it themselves. >> but hillary clinton and barack obama and all these people over seas contentionsy operations, workplace violence, that was the fort hood explanation for such a long period of time, why the mysterious reluctance to identify a simple truth. >> here's the thing. it's very important from a counterterrorism perspective for us to name and label and define the enemy because they take great care to define us, whether it's calling us infidels, nonbelievers, what have you. without identifying the adversesy there's no hope of building a strategy of eventually implementing that
7:21 pm
strategy. >> jihad, holy war? is that in the koran. >> no. >> i read it. that's not true. >> when you read the cor rkoran need to understand the backgrou background. there's no such infidels in the kor koran. that's there sir, look it up. >> there's something else in the koran that you're dealing with the christians and jews in -- >> neither christians nor jews are your friends. >> you don't help them. >> you don't help them. so islam teaches people not to help christians and jews. who are the infidels that jihad is supposed to be waged against
7:22 pm
sir. >> this is your own interpretation but when you go to the actual interpretation of the koran you're not going to find such -- >> i've got to go. thank you for your time. >> there are american muslims -- >> when we come back. this is up next tonight. are they going to interview paula jones? in one case it's about exposure and in another case it's about groping and fondling and touching against a women's will. >> and rape. >> donald trump makes that explosive comment about bill clinton last night right here on this promise. laura ingram will weigh in next and new national polls donald trump plus three and donald trump plus five over hillary clinton. we'll weigh in on that and more tonight on this busy news night here on hannity. fall in love with a new daily fiber.

oudairy or artificial flavors., so we invented a word that means that. shmorange! and it rhymes with the color of our bottle. to help spread the word, we made t-shirts! reach for the orange, it's 100% shmorange! are they going to interview paula jones? are they going to interview cath
7:25 pm
lean willy. in one case it's about exposure and another case it's about groping and fondling and touching against a woman's will. >> and rape. >> and rape. >> massive settlements. >> $850,000 to paula jones. >> impeachment for lying. >> smeerg. >> and losing your law license. he lost his law license. couldn't practice law. you don't read about this. now tnew york times these are like the pipe organs for hillary clinton. >> donald trump last night on this program talking about president bill clinton's history of sexual misconduct. this comes days after the new york times released a piece regarding donald trump's treatments of women. so will the times write a 20 page piece about bill clinton's past. we invited the two new york times authors on the show tonight. they declined to appear on the
7:26 pm
program. big shock. joining us with reaction the editor and chief of life it's nearly 20 printed pages totally debunked in a matter of 24 hours. the guy it turns out one of the writers tweeting anti-trump tae material out why isn't he fired and is there any of the other republican candidates on that would have had the courage to do what donald trump did last night? i don't think so. >> no, donald trump has made himself available for an interview with you. i watched the interview. he was forthcoming on every question you asked him and i think that's what he has to do but i will say this, he has that ace in his back pockets, the way that hillary treated all of bill clinton's victims. donald trump is anti-women, he has that ace in his back pocket but i do believe in this election cycle all those efforts
7:27 pm
to smear trump have failed. you saw all of the republican candidates who got into the personal tangles with trump and they made fun of him for his hair, his intel elect and they said he wasn't presidential but all of those personal attacks failed because more people in the end believe that he would do the things, the policies and enacts the laws with the help of congress that are actually going to make the lives of the average american better. so i think he needs to stick to the substantive concerns of the country and address them and. >> agreed. >> i think he's done that but i do believe that he doesn't have to dwell on the personal attacks because the clintons are going to try to avoid debating him on the substantive issues of the world trade organization, the failed dot come bubble that bill
7:28 pm
clinton left in george bush's lap. so i think he's in pretty good footing there. >> i agree on both points but i agree substance first yesterday was a pretty substantive day. he release in the the names of the people he would like to appoint to the supreme court and then if you noticed last night i went issue by issue balancing a budget energy independence, eliminating common core, building up the military, fixing the va, all of those issues and how committed are you to these things and he said yes and what was missing with john mccain or bob doyle they get called racist and sexist and they never fight back. donald trump will fight like other candidates have not fought. to me it's refreshing. >> yeah, it's refreshing and i think the fearlessness that he
7:29 pm
has is very inspiring. when someone is timid or their constantly apologizing, i wish i said it this way, the left loves that because it shows you have reflection but what happens when republicans do that is they get back on their heels and we saw that with romney and mccain. we see that with the republicans in congress and instead make a forceful case for the american movement and keep hammering on the issues of terrible trade deals, open boarders, all the things you've been exposing and you've been trying to talk about on radio for years, keep hammering on that's those issues and when they come at you personally i think he's right hit back and do not start getting back on your heels. that's a looser proposition and i think he's handled it well so far. >> hillary clinton was on cnn this morning and i think there were a couple of relevant questions do you think paula
7:30 pm
jones cath lean willy are lying? do you like the way these women were smeared and slandered. why didn't you speak out about it. why did you take money from saudi arabia and these other countries that have a horrible track record. here is her response. >> do you ever feel compelled to defend your honor, the hon yoor much your husband. >> no. >> that go to the core of the relationship. >> no, not at all. i know that that's exactly what he is fishing for and i'm not going to be responding. >> she cannot answer that question. it's impossible, but you know it drives her nuts. >> again, her surrogates in the press will attack trump. trump's a liar and trump's this or that. but the moment that there's pushback from actual women or trump himself the other side goes silent or they say well, we
7:31 pm
didn't include all of her quotes. next time we'll do a follow up report, but the damage they think is already done. i really believe that for most voters this is all white noise. i think most people believe either hillary is going to make their life better or trump with the way he approaches substantive policy. >> i believe that's true but i believe this was a big week for trump in this way. "the new york times" they drew out every weapon and they tried to take him out and it backfired. all these women that came to trump's defense and debunked that article in less than 24 hours was amazing and now it's hillary and bill on defense. it was a pretty stunning week. >> it was and it's textbook as to how you have to handle the media in this campaign. you don't want it to distract you from your overall message but when they come at you you have to slice back and do it hard and next time they're
7:32 pm
probably going to think twice before they try that. but they're going to be throwing more things at him. >> the next thing is he's racist. >> he's going to be anti-latino and this and that. i really believe in my heart of hearts especially when you're looking at that fox poll people are wising up to this and the clinton way did not work. it did not work on trade. it didn't work on the economy. it looks old and sounds old. >> in an unconventional year i don't think it works either. you're the best. thank you. >> thank you. donald trump leads hillary clinton now by five points in a band new general election poll. how worried should she be? and later donald trump says that he'll be adding to his list of potential supreme court nominees that he would choose from if he's the next president. we'll have reaction straight ahead. thank you for dining with us. hope to see you again soon. whoa, whoa, i got this. just gotta get the check.

7:35 pm
some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. think fixing your windshield is a big hassle? not with safelite. this family needed their windshield replaced, but they're daughters heart was set on going to the zoo. so we said if you need safelite to come to the zoo we'll come to the zoo! only safelite can fix your windshield anywhere in the us. with our exclusive mobileglassshops. and our one of a kind trueseal technology, for a reliable bond. service that fits your schedule.

7:38 pm
a new reason to worry, a brand new fox news poll shows that donald trump is beating her in a potential general election matchup and today a brand new report poll shows a bigger lead for trump. he's beating hillary by five points. here with reaction is fox news contributor and ebony williams. if i'm a democrat and i'm looking at these numbers i'm thinking do we want to abandon ship. >> that's why they're pushing bernie sanders to get out of th this race. she's looking weaker. she's said her everything being a right wing conspiracy play book is not going to work against trump. >> they don't have a new play book. that's a good point. we know the play book. republicans are racist and
7:39 pm
sexist, gender war, they hate women and they want to throw grandma over the cliff. donald trump punches back harder. it's not going to work against him. >> he's not running an identity politics campaign. they are. they're running on physical attributes. i would say there are two things to note. it doesn't mean trump is going to win in the fall. it means he could win in the fall and it means that almost every single person who has commented on this race has been wrong and spectacularly wrong. >> you have not been wrong and i have not been wrong and there's a few others that have not been so wrong but you are dead right. a lot of people have been wrong for a year and a half and they're still commenting and making wrong predictions. >> you have to ask yourself why are they so off. they think trump could never win. look at these numbers.
7:40 pm
it tells you that they don't understand the dynamics behind this campaign. it's not about trump, it's about the people voting for trump and they don't understand why those people would vote for trump. >> it's because so many that comment on this stuff they are stuck in this beltway thinking and stuck in old wisdom and it doesn't apply here. he made a point about trump not representing identity politics. i don't think he represents partisan politics. i know there are some that cringe when i say that but he transsends the classical conservative republican candidate. >> i think he's solution or ented. when you listen to the interviews he's giving ideas to solve problems and in this unconventional year think about this, you've got him beating 16 very big name republicans and hillary is battling a
7:41 pm
74-year-old angry, bitter socialist from vermont. and she's having a hard time. she can't close it out. doesn't that show a deep level of weakness. >> that's part of what it tells you and it tells you the candidates who address the economic concerns and fears of the middle class win they have to believe you but even if they believed hillary what are elite democrats running on, transgender bathrooms and global warning. they don't speak to the concerns of people. bernie sanders who is a socialist is running on the fact that the average person is really worried about not having enough money. he's run og waning on wages. >> i don't think bill clinton did the party a lot of favors. he's put a ref end dumb out there on transgender bathrooms and most americans prefer if you
7:42 pm
are a man you go to the men's roomened a the fact that he's made that issue so prominent and hillary had to comment on it doesn't that hurt her. >> ultimately whether you agree with it or you don't, that is not going to be a go to the polls type of motivator, the way the pocket book concerns are going to be. >> what do you think the number would be nationally. >> seven. i really don't think it's that important. >> in other words i think it's a 90/10 issue. what do you think tucker. >> yeah or 93/7. i completely agree. the point is they don't care what the average person thinks and so you can agree or disagree but it's anti-democratic and this is a democracy. candidates who openly don't care what voters think lose and they should. >> last word. >> i think the biggest kritism i of hillary she's bun een in pow
7:43 pm
for 30 years and what has she done to move the middle class forward and she needs to answer. >> i don't think she has an answer. i say tell me three things that hillary has accomplished that has improved the lives of the average american and nobody can answer. good to see you. >> thank you. coming up, after getting positive reviews from conservatives donald trump says he will be adding to the list of potential supreme court nominees that he would pick if he wins the white house. our panel will weigh in with reaction next as hannity continues. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn

welcome back. it has been one day since donald trump released a list of possible supreme court nominees and many conservatives have given his picks positive reviews and donald trump indicated that his list may be growing. he tweeted out my list of potential u.s. supreme court justices was very well received. during the next couple of weeks i may be adding to the list.

joining me now is the john malcolm. jay, i've talk to a lot of people that know the people on this list. not one person has anything but high praise for this list. >> this is a great list of potential nominees to the supreme court. you have justices that have served with justice scalia law clerk. they come with broad and serious credentia credentials. they have published opinions. they've served on the court for a number of years. they understand the role of a justice of the supreme court is not to make law. i think no matter what anybody thinks the fact of the matter is the lasting legacy of a president is the supreme court of the united states. we know we have a vacancy. there's a lot the stake.
7:50 pm
these nominees are great across the board. not one in there you would not be happy to have. >> you say that as somebody that has argued a number of times before the supreme court and my understanding . >> he ran the list of names by senators and other people. this is a pretty expensive vetting process. are you happy with it? yes. i think the research shows he has the right people and has right advice. i look he includes people that are often overlooked giving us a view of what they'd be like. they've been in a state supreme court. now you have a better sense of how they might perform in a u.s. supreme court. you want to make sure you get it right with a solid philosophy with courage to stand up under pressure. >> i would say this. if i can, john, republicans often get it wrong. republican presidents.

in other words we're told that a justice is going to be an originalist. he disappointed a lot of people, including myself, especially in the oeb rauma care ruling. are you confident this list is no disappointment? >> you could have added john paul stevens to that list. >> true. >> look. five of the names on the list were also on my list, which the heritage foundation published. the remaining six judges all are very qualified men and women have a proper view of the modest roles a judge plays and going to interpret the constitution based on the words and not using the empty vessels supporting their personal or political biases. these are qualified people. and just pointed out six are sitting circuit court judges.
7:52 pm
five of them are sitting state supreme court justices. one of the ones on the circuit court spent time on the wisconsin supreme court as well. these are men, women, very well qualified with a broad bredth of experience. >> do you see problems for any of the 11 going up against democrats? knowing they play politics, clarence thomas, comes owe find, with judicial picks? >> the fact of the matter is that look. i think you've got to keep control of the united states senate. that is going to be very important here. i think any one of these nominees you're seeing the left criticizing these individuals. why? because they know that they have a judicial philosophy like scalia. that is what they don't want. we have to be prepared if donald trump is the president of the united states to defend these nominees aggressively. that means you've got to maintain control of the senate. it would be good to get 60
7:53 pm
conservatives and make sure you don't have a problem. everyone of these will be a fight worth taking. >> you can follow harry reid and circumvent precedents, just change them. i think this is important. do you see problems? >> you know, i don't. i see the real strong contrast with what the president put forward in judge garhand. he's got folks that stood up for the second amendment. his judge tends to defer to other agencies every chance he gets. we've got people like judge keplich. we see the judge and people here who show what it is like to stand up for the constitution. >> john, we'll give you the last
7:54 pm
word. >> i think some of the people would well face a confirmation fight. these are people worth fighting for. and you need to have a president who is prepared to stand by them, to the bitter end and get them across the goal line. >> i have to believe this will go a long way to maybe conservatives that have doubts about donald trump's commitment to conservatism, one of the most-important jobs any president will have. coming up, more "hannity" right after the break. stay with us. many sleep-aids have pain medicine but zzzquil is different because why would you take a pain medicine when all you want is good sleep? zzzquil: a non-habit forming sleep-aid that's not for pain, just for sleep. ♪uh oh. oh.
